Loftus-Cheek doubt for Euro final
Chelsea have been hit by the news Ruben Loftus-Cheek could miss the Europa League final after picking up an injury against New England Revolution.
The severity of the injury, thought to be to his ankle, is not yet known, but the player was seen leaving the stadium on crutches, which does not bode well with the final against Arsenal in Baku fast approaching.
Chelsea took on the MLS side in the Final Whistle on Hate game, which was arranged some time ago to raise awareness of the on-going rise in hate crimes around the world, and is reported to have raised over £3million.
Chelsea were committed to play and boss Maurizio Sarri put out a strong side with Eden Hazard among the players to start.
The Blues won the game 3-0 thanks to a brace from Ross Barkley and a further strike from Olivier Giroud, but the victory came at a cost as second-half substitute Loftus-Cheek picked up the injury.
Chelsea fans are now waiting for an update regards the player’s fitness and will be keeping their fingers crossed it is not serious.
